Weekend with Rollie, Gina and Family

P1020499
Friday morning we got all settled into Rollie and Gina’s place in Denham Springs, Lousiana. They had a beautiful place for us to park on a concrete pad.


P1020449
I really enjoyed some quality time with Rollie. 


P1020451
This is Gina’s beautiful Rock Garden and Pond.  It is so peaceful and calming.


P1020483
Soon it was time for one of those wonderful Louisiana meals that Ms. Pat and I love so much….

P1020481
Rollie and Gina really know how to cook.... just look at this beautiful Crawfish Etouffee over rice…  Yummmmm, it was so good!

P1020485
Saturday morning we even had time for one of my favorite pastimes, a little Target Practice.


P1020507
I also noticed a different Flag displayed out front and the atmosphere soon changed to Football!!  This is LSU territory…NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!!

P1020518
Purple was the color of choice and the party began…… Rollie’s Dad on the left, then Ricky(his
brother-in-law), Gina, Rollie  and me getting ready for the 7pm game.

P1020523
Here is Ricky, Dana (Rollie’s sister), Gina and Rollie for a quick picture in front of the fireplace.


P1020540
About 6:00 pm we all gathered over at Ricky and Dana's place, just a few houses away, for the big game of the Century..... #1 LSU vs #2 Alabama. That’s Ricky and Dana's son and his wife with front row seats. Let the cheers BEGIN!!

P1020533
Even their pets were wearing LUS colors.  What a beautiful dog.....I loved him.

P1020543
Way too soon it was Sunday morning. Time for our goodbyes to a weekend that was so special to us.  I knew it would be hard to leave and I don’t like goodbye so we said  “So Long Kids”.  We love you all very much and thanks for all your wonderful hospitality.


P1020552
We headed on West through Baton Rouge and then across the Mississippi River.

P1020569
Then about noon we crossed over into the big state of Texas.


P1020571
At 3:00pm we pulled into our destination for the day. Motorhomes of Texas in Nacogdoches. We had traveled 300 miles and the timing was perfect.  We pulled in and found a parking spot and hooked up, put out the slideouts,turned on the A/C, sat back and enjoyed Happy Hour.

Monday morning at 8:00 am sharp, they pulled us into bay #2 and two technicians began servicing our Coach. Both of them have been working almost non-stop the last 2 days and hopefully they will get us out tomorrow. I’m impressed with the work they do and how they are dedicated to customer satisfaction. They let us live in the coach while they work.

Several have asked about little Abigail, Rollie and Gina’s first and only Grand Child.  Here is a picture of her and her very proud Grandparents. Isn’t she a beautiful baby? So alert and look at the hair!! She is only 3 months old. This picture was taken in California on their last visit. I wish she had been here in Louisiana so we could hold her and hug her but maybe we'll get to see her soon.  Her proud Daddy, Thomas, is in the Marines and has been overseas.  He just came back to the States and saw his beautiful baby daughter for the first time……  Praise the Lord!!

I wish I could show more pictures.  There are dozens and we had such a wonderful time. Unfortunately, I just don’t have the space.  Hope I’ve shown you a little part of these great “Kids” that we have adopted. I’m sure PROUD to call them Family.

Is is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and hurry back.

Mike

Howdy McFalls,
Thank you, for he visit with THE G-PARENTS!! They sure do have a
lovely place and they sure know how to feed 'old-folks'.. Why not they are LSU Cajuns!! I remember when the Texas Aggies used to play LSU every year, until we couldn't beat'em and started playing LSU jr. colleges, instead!!! Thank you, for the Abigail fix and I'm sure Gina & Rollie hate for her to be in Calidamnfornia..
Mike, just get more Pressure Pro
orders..
